where we go. thanks. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i have a question. >> commissioner hayon. >> when you say there are things that you would like to get done, that you aren't to get done currently, what are some of these issues. >> we have two extremely competent investigators, but we could do more with more. right now we audit all candidates and random sampling of all candidates and eventually i think we should be able to audit every single candidate. auditing is one of the most effective tools we have, anti-corruption tools. and we want to continue to provide the services to the public in overseeing. the audits that we do right now are taking longer. we're trying to do more, but the mayoral audits, for example, we only had one real audit to do in the last mayoral election. and in this one we had a lot more and mayoral audits take longer than supervisorial audits, for example. we have gotten much better about giving out notices of fines, and other responses to infractions. but i would like to do more than that. we want to move forwards monthly reporting of consultants, l

. >> >> commissioner hayon? >> my question is in terms of the opinion that has been rentered by miss herrick, are we bound by that dismissing or is it simply advisory and we can decide what we think? >> we are not bound by her memo. we made our decisions at the october 22nd meeting. and as part of that, we asked her to review some additional documents, and she has now come back with a recommendation stating that she at least believes that. >> i read and understand that. >> so i don't think we're bound by this memo that she provided today or that is part of today's packet. >> but her opinion certainly should help us decide and vote on whether these three emails are public or not. is that right? >> right. >> and what i hear chair hur saying is that this memo is consistent with the actions we took -- the discussion we had at the last meeting about this. and we would be applying that same standard; that we think that matters -- communications between the comptroller's office and ethics commission staff cannot be revealed, but that communications would be our staff. the fact of such communicatio
